Bostal Lake — more than just a lake for swimming

Bostal Lake lies in the valley of the still quite young Nahe river not far from the source of the Nahe near Selbach and with a surface area of 120 hectares is the largest reservoir in southwest Germany. It is fed to the west by the two tributaries, Bosbach Creek and Dämelbach Creek, which flow into the Nahe from the southern branches of the Hochwald mountain region. Beyond the retaining wall Bosbach Creek continues and eventually flows into the Nahe at Gonnesweiler. Because of its very appealing location, Bostal Lake has quickly become a popular destination for the entire region; not least thanks to the diverse leisure and water sport facilities offered here. You will find two bathing beaches, an indoor swimming pool, a sailing school, sailing harbor, surfing school, floating/landing beach for surfers, boats for excursions on the lake, fairgrounds, the "Bosener Mühle" art center as well as a music pavilion. And, of course, part of the lake is also a nature preserve.

It is important to note that Bostal Lake lies directly on the "Street of Sculptures" ("Straße der Skulpturen"), a 25 km long trail that leads from St. Wendel to Bosen. There are 51 works by 48 artists from 11 countries along this route.

Photo: On the circular trail around the Bostalsee lake are the sculptures no. 35 («Requiem for the Jews» by Shelomon Seliger) and 36 («Love Throne» by Leo Kornbrust), which are part of the "Street of Sculptures". Their locations are about 15 minutes apart, but have been brought together virtually here.
